Columbus Grove is looking for a new director for their youth athletic association and recreation committee. The Putnam County Sentinel reports Todd Hoffman stepped down from his roles recently. Hoffman told village council that the park board never meets anymore. He added it was getting too hard to get people to volunteer to help.
Hoffman also questioned if a $4 per child fee collected by the youth athletic association went to park maintenance. He was told by council members the money goes into a line item in the general fund. Village administrator Jeff Vance also said the village spends more on the parks than is collected by the participation fees.
The village’s recreation committee has set a meeting for 5 p.m. on June 6 at Hall Avenue Park to discuss the issue.
